Great Location

Nice boutique style hotel - but rooms are more like an apartment - so you feel like you're staying at home. They do need to clean their rooms or do a renovation. Bed wasn't too comfortable. Housekeeping came to clean but didn't replace hand towels or shampoo/conditioner.

Not a 4 Star

I found the staff at this hotel to be excellent but did not agree with the 4 star rating. The exercise room felt cramped and the room did not have a closet to hang up a suit. It did have a small kitchen if that is what appeals to someone.

Good not great

Location was pretty good...close to public transportation and walking distance to shopping and restaurants. Room was really small but it was clean and the bathroom was nice and modern. My complaint is parking was really expensive ($33 a day!) and the burger we ordered from room service was really awful and it was over $30 all in to boot. On top of that you have to pay for wi-fi service which was spotty at best. Staff was friendly and helpful but for some reason this hotel just didn't do it for me.

Good value, nothing special

Good value relative to other offerings around the area. Wish they had free wifi, but that seems hard to come by for hotels in Toronto. There's a Starbucks a block and half away, though.

Good but expensive

The bedroom was clean and nicely decorated, but the space was just the size of the bed, nice kitchen and washer dryer included, but no free internet or local phone calls, overall compared to its neighborhood hotels, it is more expensive.

The Cosmopolitan in Toronto downtown

I have previously stayed at other hotels in the same general area within the heart of Toronto downtown (Yonge and King Streets), and "The Cosmopolitan" unfortunately does not measure up, especially in terms of pricing. I booked the hotel on Orbitz based on reviewer comments, but I found that for a boutique hotel, it does not add much to the typical hotel experience to make it worth recommending. My biggest complaint was regarding how small the room was in which I stayed. For a suite, it required me to turn sideways to make my way around. The desk chair would hit the bed if pushed a feet back (and there wasn't a couch). The hotel staff was also not particularly helpful/friendly. "One King Suites" and "Hotel Victoria" which are across the street from "The Cosmopolitan" are both much better bets in terms of what you may get for your money. I do not see myself coming back to this one.

Reasonable value

The best thing about the hotel is its location. The rooms/suites are rather small, but very clean and well furnished. The hotel staff were not overly friendly or helpful, but provided answers to questions.
